We do it everyday: set the table for dining. It is not that hard or expensive to add flare and fun to this otherwise mundane chore. Here are Ten Simple Everyday Tablescape Ideas that will not break the bank.
One of my favorite areas to feed the need to create is on a dining table. Over the past several years, building my INSTAGRAM account (tap here to check it out), and writing a blog to inspire your creativity, I’ve completed a great number of tablescapes. Here’s a closer look at Ten Simple Everyday Tablescape Ideas from the past four years.
It’s also been fun seeing my spaces (and photography skills) develop over the years. There are at least four dining tables pictured on this blog! Some I purchased and refinished and sold! Others, I determined were to small for the space and sold. Even the tables that made the cut, have been relocated to the kitchen or basement. Phew! No wonder I’m tired!
Mix and Match Table Settings
The broken record, again, encourages you to mix the dishes you own on your everyday table. Despite what appears on this blog, I don’t own seven hundred sets of dishes! I do own several sets of six or eight snack plates. If you love setting fun tablescapes, you can pick up orphaned lunch size, or snack plate sets on clearance aisles, or even at thrift stores.
As you might expect, the most recent is always my favorite. This chinoiserie style tablescape hits all my decor passion buttons: color, curated, chinoiserie, bold and unafraid.
Here are the items you need to recreate a version of my latest table
- dishes – everyday or china
- glasses vintage, crystal or everyday
- flowers – fresh cut, plants, foliage, silk
- napkin rings
I realize that’s a lame list, but SEO said DO a LiSt!
There are so many options for centerpieces. You can go to the florist and purchase a beautiful and expensive bouquet. You can cut flowers from your back yard.
Faux Flowers will Stand the Test of Time on your Everyday Tablescapes
DIY Simple Tablescapes for Holidays
There have been numerous opportunities over the four year life of this blog to bring you holiday styled tablescapes. Here is a small tribute.
Hope you’ve enjoyed the various tablescapes! I’ve loved going through the past four years of photographs, many until now were unseen.
